NAMYSTO Sweet 2014

NAMYSTO Sweet 2014

Aromas of dried pineapple and mango with roasted sweet notes: spices complement a fascinating and refreshing palate of apricot pips and honey.

Ideally served chilled at around 6-8˚C, it can be enjoyed as an aperitif, but will be a wonderful complement to foie gras, fruit based desserts and cheese, and can even be used as an ice cream topping.

about the harvest: Vintage: 2014
Harvested: March 2014
Average Yield: 2 tons/Ha

in the cellar : Desiccation (drying) of stalks was done on selected Sauvignon Blanc batches to allow for increased concentration of sugar levels. Whole-bunch grapes were cold-soaked for 12 hours, then pressed off to holding tanks and left to settle for 2 days. The clean juice was racked (transferred) to old French oak barrels and inoculated with select yeast strains. Fermentation was stopped through filtration, to achieve a certain sugar level. Maturation in old 225L barrels lasted 5 months.
